TIME: 1:30 p.m. socialize, refreshments, and quarterly meeting; 2:00 p.m. program
LOCATION: Room 101, Casa del Prado, Balboa Park

We are pleased to welcome local orchid expert Debby Halliday, who is guaranteed to delight us with a slide show of her remarkable collection of orchids. She also will bring a selection of orchid plants for us to enjoy.

Debby and her husband became interested in orchids while living in Brooklyn in the 1970s and now, almost 50 years later, Debby continues to nurture more than 700 plants, including several species orchids, caring for them in her Rancho Santa Fe greenhouse and shade house. She will share her secrets of successful growing techniques and how to adapt to their characteristics. Her approach is that orchids are sturdy and rewarding plants if you just get the basics right.
